We did the hop on and hop off bus tour and got off at this spot. Got off at this spot and absolutely loved it. It's worth stopping at and taking pictures. There are people usually there who offer to take pictures of you. Just remember to tip them.

If you really need the picture of the Love Sculpture, then do it, but I'd recommend leaving as soon as possible! There were skateboarders dangerously zipping around with no regard to anyone's safety (including there own). There was a lady wearing an empty case of M&M's as a hat CREEPILY and intrusively photo-bombing everyone she could. And as my sheltered... More

The fountain and sculpture are beautiful, however there are "locals" hovering nearby and will infringe on your personal space. They will ask if you'd like them to take your photo then require payment for doing so (with your device) or if you do not require their "services" they lightly harass.

A couple people I asked said that Love Park was nothing special, but I absolutely adored it! People were polite and lined up in an orderly fashion to take pictures in front of the sign, people of all ages enjoyed wading in the gorgeous fountain behind it, and it was overall just a lovely stop in Philadelphia. A must-see if... More

We were able to get a great photo at the LOVE statue and had a bit of splash time in the fountain. Nice to take a few moments and enjoy a beautiful day in the city of brotherly love.

While actually being the John F Kennedy Plaza it has been nicknamed "Love Park" due to the famous LOVE STATUE designed by Robert Indiana. I have to wonder just how many lovebirds have had their pic snapped by that statue?? Interestingly enough the park was designed by Kevin Bacon's father, City Planner Edmond Bacon to cover an underground parking site... More

Love park is an iconic spot to take a photo... There are always a ton of people here. The love statue isn't as large as some imagine it to be though. Very close to city hall.

We first went to the Love park around noon, but there was a line-up, therefore we left and went to visit other areas of the city. We came back later in the evening and there was much less people and we were then able to take pictures. It's a nice little park during the day, but the crowd it different... More

Near the Convention Center we parked in a garage and walked a few blocks to get a pic of this iconic sign. Much smaller than the one in NYC, but a great pic nonetheless. Next block over there are photo ops with giant Monopoly Pieces (Iron and Hat) and game pieces (Sorry) and it's in eyeshot of the Reading Railroad.... More
